Abstract

To understand the characteristics of the wireless networks, the network usage data from wireless measurement tools are essential. The data collection is a process of collecting the network time-varying information in standardized formats and from standard interfaces. The characteristics of the wireless networks include, signal propagation, received signal quality, network traffic, active applications and mobility of the MT. The purpose of the measurement is to collect vital data of the wireless network. There are several tools available for this purpose. The most widely used network measurement tools are client side measurement tool, Syslog, Simple Network Management protocol(SNMP), network sniffing, wireless sniffing. This paper discusses the different wireless measurement tools like Syslog, Simple Network Management protocol, network sniffing, wireless sniffing and their benefits and limitations.
